TO THE ELECTORS OF THE UNITED BOROUGHS OF HAVERFORDWEST, NARBERTH, AND FISHGUARD. } GENTLEMEN, I lament that the retirement of Mr Scourfield from the Representation of your Boroughs has imposed upon you the necessity of seeking another Candidate to supply his ptace. The Requisition I have bad the honour so usex- pectedly to Teceive from a large number of intelligent and influential Electors, demands as prompt and frank an acceptance on my part, as the support has been freely and handsomely given to me. The task, I feel, is great to follow one, who has for so many years zealously anfi efficiently discharged the duties of your Representative his unceasing Mid de- Voted attention to your local interests, & his readiness at all times to devote his time and talents to the pro- motion of your welfare, have endeared him to those who agreed with him, & caused him toibe respected by those who Oft some points differed from him. Should I be so fortunate as to attain the bonouralble position of repre- senting you in Parliament, I shall endeavour to follow his «xample. I am a Conservative.; entertaining liberal views towards all good measures that commend themselves to my ,judgment, come from what side of the Rouse they may. On the great question of the total Disestablishment and DisendowmentoftheIrishChurch, I think it right to state that my opinions are'decidedly opposed to it-, at the same time I am most desirous to consider and aid in remedying all evils that may be shewn to exist. I shall endeavour also to extend the usefulness and blessings which accompany otrr Reformed Church. IshaH offer the strongest opposition to the endowment Of the Church of Rome in Ireland, I rejoice at the removal of such grievances as were the Cause of offence and wrong to the great body of oar Nonconformist Brethren, and I wish to see the further removal of any under whichtheyjmay stIM continue to labour. I am very anxious to see the large increasel in taxation which has taken place of late years, especially in our Military aind Naval Departments, much di- minished, and indulge the hope that the policy of non- interference which Lord Stanley has so happily inaugurated will, in the end, lead to a considerable European Disarmament. My constant aim will be to promote the success of measures that may conduce to the reduction of Local Taxation. I shall endeavour to press forward the (Reform of the Bankruptcy, and other beneficial measures, which have been so often hindered by valuable time feeing lost$t the end of each session by party strife. It is my intention to wait on each of you, when J shall be prepated to answer any questions that may be put to me, and to explain further my political opinions. I have the honour to be, Gentlemen, Your very obedient Servant, I SAMUEL PITMAN. I Picton Castle, 31st July, 1868. I i

THIS wonderful Ointment acts like magic in relieving and curing old sores, wounds, bad legs, ulcers, and eruptions of the skin; when rubbed on the surface it I penetrates and purifies each tissue on its passage, and I exerts the most wholesome influence over the internal structures. It heals by cleansing all animal fluids with I which it comes in contaot, and thereby promotes a sound and permanent cure. ) Gout and Rheumatism, ( To sufferers from the racking pains of Rheumatim I and Gout this Ointment wilf prove invaluable.

EARLY ENGLISH NEWSPAPERS. The following interesting letter appeared in the Times of Oct. 13th Sir,—May I be allowed through your columns to place on record three facts in connexion with the history ot early English newspapers? 1. It is commonly supposed that the first daily news- papers published in England was the Daily Courant, the introductory number of which appeared on Wednesday the tith of March, 1702, three days after the accession of Queen Anne. In point of fact, however, a daily news- paper had been started 42 years previously, while Charles 11. was still at Breda, and while Monk was still wavering between King and Commonwealth. In the collection of news-sheets made by Dr Burney, and preserved In the British Museum, may be seen three numbers of A Perfect Diurnal, dated the 8th, 9th, and 10th of March, 1660. This publication consisted of four leaves of small quarto was printed by John Redmayne in Lovel's-court, Pater- noster-row, and consisted exclusively of the orders of Parliament, of the Bills read and petitions presented, re- sembling In its contents the ordinary Diarnals of the Civil Wars. 2. Mr Nichols, in his Literary Anecdotes, published in 1812, stated that the earliest advertisement with whicfl he had met was in the seventh number of the Impartiall Intelligencer, a newspaper started in the year 1649. NI Fellnell has already pointed out in your columns that advertisements may be met with even earlier than this. But no OQP, I believe, has drawn attention to the fact that the first of all advertisements appeared in that which was also the first of all English periodicals, the Weekly Newet of Natbanael Butter. On the last page of the number for the 1st of February, 1625, N.S., separated by a line from the ordinary text and printed in italic type, is the following paragraph Here is the present day published an excellent Dis- course concerning the Mutch between our most Gracious and Mightie Prince Charles, Prince of Wales, and the Lady Henrette Maria, daughter to Henry the fourth, late King of France, &c, Sister to Lewis the thirteenth, now King of those Dominions: Manifesting the Royall Ancestors of both these famous Princes, and truly ex. plaining the severall interchanges of Marriages which hath beene between France and England: with the lively Picture of the Prince and the Lady cut in Brasse." 3 Another popular error that the Mercurius Viviens of 1643 was the firsit, illustrated paper IIn}"t also be aban- doned. In the Weekly Neives of the 20th of December, 1638, besides the usual items of foreign news, is an account, of a 4 prodigious eruption of fire, which exhaled in the miduest of the Ocean Sea, over against the Isle of Saint Michael, one of the Terceras, and the new Island which it hath made.' The text is illustrated by a full- page engraving showing 'the island, its length and breadth, and the places where the fiie burst out.' I am, Sir, your obedient servant, G. H. C. Temple, Oct. 10. REASONS FOR PREFERRING DR. DE JONGH'S LIGHT- BrWWN COD LIVER OIL. -On the important question of the right kind of Cod Liver Oil to be administered, Dr Edward Smith, F.R.S., many years one of the Physicians to the Brampton Hospital for Consumption, and now Medical Officer to the Poor Law Board, in his well- known treatise on I Consumption,' gives the following instructive information^ 4 The quality of the Oil should be regarded. We have,peen informed by a manufactu- rer of Cod Liver Oil, that probably not one-tenth of the Oil which is sold is altogether derived from the liver of the Cod Fish. Hence we think it a great advantage that there is one kind of Cod Liver Oil which is universally admitted tn be genuine-the Light-Brown Oil supplied by Dr. de Jongh. It has long been our practice, when prescribing the Oil, to recommend this kinJ, since, amidst so much variety and uncertainty, we have confi- dence in its genuineness.' Dr. de Jongh's Light-Brown Cod Liver Oil is sold only in capsuled imperial half-pints, 2s. 6d. pints, 4s. 9d.; quarts, 9s.; labelled with his stamp and signature without which none can possibly be genuine, by his sole consignees, Ansar, Harford, and Co, 77, Strand, London, and respectable chemists. EXTRACT OF MEAT.—So much having been written about cheap food for the people, it is scarcely necessary to draw attention to the invaluable extract of meat by Liebig's process, which, first introduced as a medicinal agent, is now so extensively used in the kitchen. We cannot imagine housekeepers making soup or beef-tea by the old, tedious, and expensive method, while with this extract they can prepare soup equally nice and far more digestible in a moment. The genuine extract is manu- factured in enormous quantities from cattle of English breed, on the establishments of R. Tooth, Esq, of Syd- ney, Australia, and is now sold at a reasonable price in jars with very convenient stoppers. The scientific men speak highly of Tooth's extract. Dr. Richter, of Dres- den, a man of no mean attainments, describes it as ex- quisi'e;' at the same time, it is all approved by Dr W. A. Miller, of King's College, before being issued for sale, We should recommend a trial of it. Messrs Coleman and Co., of St. Mary-at-Hill, are the consignees, but it is sold in nearly every grocer's and chemist's shop in town and country. The Standard, Sept. 2. GALVANISM. NÀ,TURE'S CHIEF RESTORER OF br. PAIRED VITAL ENKHQY.—A Pamphlet on Self-applicable Electricity, demonstrating the most effectual, rational, and simple galvanic treatment of nervous and rheumatic pains, debility, indigestion, nervousness, sleeples-meee, paralysis, neuralgia, epilepsy, cramp, functional disorders, &c, as raised exclusively by the use of PULVER- MACHER'S Improved PATENT GALVANIC CHAIN BANDS, BELTS, and POCKET SELF-RESTORABLE CHAIN BATTERIES, &c.

Sir William Fergusson, Bart.; Sir J. R. Martin, M.D.; Dr E. Sieveking, M D Dr Handfield Jones, Physician to St. Mary's Hospital; Dr A. Clarke, Physician to the London Hospital. This Pamphlet (sent post free) treats" why" and "wherefore" these Galvanic arrangements have proved most ifficacious, even in cases where other Electrical apparatus and ordinary medical treatment have been tried in vain, especially in ailments resulting from want of vital elec- tricity in the functional organs.—Apply to J. L. PULVER- MACHER, 200, Regent Street, London, W. A SUCCESSFUL EXPERIMENT.—The Civil Service Gazette has the following:—41 There are few simple articles of food which can boast so many valuable and important dietary properties as cocoa. While acting on the nerves as a genuine stimulant, it provides the body with some ol the purest elements of nutrition, and at the same time corrects and invigorates the action of the digestive organs. These beneficial effects depend in a great measure upon the manner of its preparation, butof late years such cio:!e attention has been given to the growth and treatment ot cocoa, that there is no difficulty in securing it with every useful quality fully developed. The singular success which Mr Epps attained by his homoepathic preparation of cocoa has never been surpassed by any experimentalist Far and wide the reputation of Epps's Cocoa hall spread by the simple force of- its own extraordinary merits. Medical men of all shapes ot opinion have agreed in recommending it as the safest and most beneficial article of diet for persons of weak constitutions. This superiority of a particular mode of preparation over all others is a remarkable proof of the great results to be obtainep from uttte causes. By a thorough knowledge of the natural ^aws which govern the operations of digestion and nutri- tion, and by a careful application of the fine properties ol well-selected cocoa, Mr Epps has provided our breakfast tables with a delicately flavoured beverage which may save us many heavy doctor's bills. It is by the judicioiiV clous use of such articles or diet that a constitution may be gradually built up untilstrollg enough to resist every tendency to disease. Hundreds of subtle maladies are floating around us ready to attack wherever there is a weak point We may escape many a fatal shaft by keep- ing ourselves well fortified with pure blood and a properly nourished frame." THE NEW ATLANTIC CABLE.—The manufacture- of the new Atlantic telegraph which is to be sub- merged between Brest and a suitable terminus on the shores of the State of New York is progressing satis- factorily. The new cable is almost identical in construction with those which were completed in 1866, the only difference being that the diameter of the conducting copper core is-slightly greater, and the outside wires are of homogeneous Bessemer steel, galvanized, having a breaking strain of only about J 001b. The new cable will be laid in two length — one from Brest to St. Pierre, in deep sea, of 2,3 5 miles, not including slack, and the other from St. Pierre to the terminus, of 722 miles in length, not including slack. The latter section will be simila to the Persian Gulf cable, as it will have to be laid1 in comparatively shallow water, and its exterior wir es will be protected with Bright and Clark's patent Siliceous compound, which consists principally of powdered flint and pitch. The construction of the shore ends will be similar to that' of the existing Atlantic lines, and will gradually become thinner until they assume the deep sea dimensions. During the summer Her Majesty's ship Gannet took soundings along the proposed route, and from the results of the operations it is understood that the bottom of the ocean is nearly the same in character as the bed ia which the existing cables are laid, and of about the same depth. Little but mud and ooze were found along the route. In order to avoid the dangers of injury from rocks and icebergs, the new line will be laid to the south of the present cables, below the southern edge of the Great Bank, so that it may he laid in deep water. Sir James Anderson, who will command the Great Eastern during the expedition organised for the submergence of the line, has made the following observations regarding the Newfound- land Banks:—" By keeping in the 500 fathom line upon the Milne Bank, and around the southern edge ot the Grand Bank, there is no possibility of ice or any other agency that can be suggested injuring the cable. The northern edge of the Grand Bank was avoided because it is uncertain at what depth the icebergs ground. Hieyare said, upon good authority, to ground at times in 90 fathoms. It is not certain at what depth the vessels employed in the seal trade may sometimes choose to drop an anchor for the purpose of keeping in the track of ice floes. These dangers are avoided by the track chosen for the pro- posed cable, and I a.ii justified by my own expe- rience in saying that the track from the southern edge of the Grand Bank to St. Pierre, and thence to the place of landing in America, is entirely free from any danger from ice, and does not cross any anchoiage resorted to by the fleet of iishing vessels." The breaking strain of the new steel cable will be ,7<} tons, and the strain required for submersion need not be more than 14 cwt. Even if at any time it be necessary to haul up any portion of it already laid the strain need not exceed a ton and a half in the deepest water. The weight of copper forming the couductor of the existing Atlantic cables is 3001b per knot in the new cable it will be about 4001b. The Great Eastern has arrived at Sheerness, whence she will proceed with the cable probably in the end of next June. After leaving the Medway she will go to Brest to finish coaling, and will thence start on the telegraphic expedition. CONVOCATION AND INTEMPERANCE.— committee appointed by the Convocation of the Province of Canterbury is instituting inquiries into the subject of intemperance with a view of presenting a report at the next meeting. The following are the 4 Heads of of Inquiry,' which have been sent into every parish — I. Extent of the evil. 2. Probable causes. 3. Results. 4. Remedies. The following are the 'queries:'—I. Extent of the Evil.-(a) (1) Popula- tion of parish, (2) agricultural or manufacturing (b) number (1) of publichouses,, (2) beershops; (c) amount of intemperance prevalent in parish, whether occasional or habitual, (1) men, (2) women; (d). class or classes chiefly addicted to it; (e) its increase or decrease (relatively to population) since 1830 (f) the earliest age at which it begins. II. Probable Causes -—(g) Legislative enactments, or absence of these, (h) social or trade usages, (i) supposed medical properties of intoxicating drinks; III. Consequences of Intemperante Habits as affecting-(k), morality and attendance on the ordinances of religion, (1) domestic happiness and comfort, (m) education of working classes, (n) health of population, (o) crime, pauperism, lunacy, and attendant expenses to the community at large, (p) special influence for evil of traffic in intoxicating liquors on Sundays, or at late hours on other days, (q) general influence of the liquor traffic and fidelity of the police. IV. Reme- dies Suggested—e.<y. (r) counteractions which have been fonnd most efficacious in diminishing the occa- sions or checking the practice of intemperance, (s) other means, whether legisiative or otherwise, which might be desirable. The committee consists of the Archdeacon of Coventry (Sandford), the Deans of Westminter, Canterbury, and Chichester, the Arch- deacons of Ely, Exeter, Leicester, Nottingham, and Salop, Canons Argles, Carus, Gillett, Harvey, Ken- naway, Oxenden, and Wood, Dr. Fraser, Prebendary Gibbs, and Prebendary Lowther. The Archdeacon of Coventry, who is the chairman of the committee, has, on his own responsibility, sent the following form to governors and chaplains of prisons, and auperintendents of lunatic asylums, throughout the country: "Ihe Instrumentality of Intemperancce in the Production or Promotion of Disease.—1. What proportion of those who have come under your cognizance, as lunatics, have been the victims of intemperance ? 2. How far do you consider the health of patients to be affected by total abstinence I from intoxicating drinks ? 3. What remedial measures against intemperance can you kindly suggest." THE FLIGHT OF THE JESUITS.—The Lisbon papers believe that as many as five hundred Jesuits have entered Portugal from Spain. GENERAL GARIDALDI.-The Corriere de Sardeqna gives. some details respecting Garibaldf. He is always calm kind, and iiffectionate. He said recently to a visitor 14 1 do not suffer so much, but I feel I am growing old. I. am a weather-beaten hull, which has made many voyages; a plank is at one time wanting, at another a naIl-always something; but an faraest. will supplies all1 deficiencies; and when the country may have need of the last timber of the old barque I shall "willingly malie the sacrifice." The Dublin correspondent of the Church Review writes One word before 1 end to some of our 4 High Church friends in Eiiland' wlif) may wish to see the Irish Church removed from her position and emoluments. An eminent Roman Catholic judge in Ireland has made a statement lately which they should lay to heart. It is this, The Irish Church has as good, if not a better title j to her possessions than any one in the country. It she is disendowed I would not give ten years' purchase for any property in the lund.'
